Almost June

Summer has finally come to my town.  It's been in the 80-90's for the past week.  I love it.  The warm weather makes me so happy...I don't even mind sweating in my car whenever I drive anywhere.  (The black leather seats get really hot and the AC doesn't work all that well.)  I can't believe it's almost June.  I'm really trying hard to stay positive, upbeat, and mindful this month and into the future.  It's been a little easier to do to because I had a nice long weekend with CJ.

Friday morning I got out of work at 7am.  I spent the rest of the day sleeping and playing with my new puppy.  Friday night, CJ and I left the puppy at home and went out or date night, our first date night in a long time.  It was great.  We went to Bone Fish and then brought some ice cream home.  Yummy!

I spent Saturday morning at work, but I was moonlighting so I made a little extra money and then worked out and played with my puppy in the afternoon.  CJ and I went out again to a little cocktail party for a couple hours with some friends from work.  It was a lot of fun and the sangria was delicious!!

Sunday was a relaxing day with church, hanging pictures, playing with the puppy, and grocery shopping.

Monday was more relaxation + Insanity workout + picnic at our friend's house.  We brought our puppy to the picnic and he did great with our friend's bigger dog.  We even went for a nice long walk and really tired both dogs out.

Today, I returned to work but on a more normal schedule.  I will be working on days and then taking overnight call every 4th night, which is not bad at all.  This was only day 1, but I wasn't on-call and I was home by 2pm, so I definitely can't complain.

As for my cycle news, today is CD 9.  AF has been gone for a couple of days.  My temps are nice and low.  I'm just waiting for my HSG on Friday (CD 12) and then the baby-dancing begins.  So far, I haven't mentioned anything to CJ about my cycle so that's a big change and I'm thinking about not doing OPK's.  I'm just going to temp, relax, bd every other day, relax some more, and have a great time with CJ.  I'm definitely not that hopeful about this cycle in particular, but it feels nice to be more relaxed.  


  1. Found your blog from other blogs and am so excited to follow. I am a PA in peds; had a miscarriage (10 weeks gestation) at the end of March 2011 and just had a chemical preganancy this weekend. I also have PCOS, so ovuation is tricky. I have a 2.5 year old little girl that was conceived from Femara and IUI, but it still doesn't take away the pain from the miscarriage (turned out to be Turner's...I demanded genetic testing) and no I am uncertain how to even feel about the chemical preganancy. Frustrating....just thought I would reach out. www.jonandchanlassak.blogspot.com (I haven't shared anything about the chemical yet). My email is: chantellelassak@gmail.com in case you ever want a penpal! :)

  2. I found your blog through the Dead Baby Club's June feature. We've been trying to conceive a living child for almost 3 years now and have had three losses at 18 weeks, then at 7 weeks, then a missed mc at 6 weeks.I hope you get your rainbow soon, AJ.
